Jay Boogie – sweetmisery

This one-off explores the darker side of soul. In the last five years, a handful of new artists have emerged that have been categorized as “doom soul” or “urban emo”, which are really just catchphrases to identify an alternative approach to a familiar sound. The reality is that this sound has always been around and sweet misery brings together this myriad of sounds. Tracklisting: 29m

The CathedralJavotti Media

Talib Kweli (@talibkweli) has been tweeting about this mixtape for a minute and today he made it available.

The Cathedral features his stable of artists under the Javotti Media (@javottimedia) banner and features RES (@the1res), Niko Is (@nikohigh) – whose Good Blood mixtape was featured yesterday, Cory Mo (@corymomusic) and K’Valentine (@thekvalentine). (via Soundcloud)

Cynthia’s SonInspectah Deck


This new mixtape from Inspectah Deck (@inspectahdeckwu) can ride the wave of excitement surrounding the upcoming release of A Better Tomorrow.

Packed with 19 new tracks – with the bulk of production from Deck himself – there’s little to no Wu participation and this is a good thing.

His production and rhymes are in grand form and allow him to stand as a solo artist.

Guest features are sparse with most of them coming in production credits.

Moss, Phantom Of The Beats and Bronze Nazareth are the most recognizable.

This nod to 70s soul and 90s boom bap could easily be an official release with some knob twiddling from The RZA (and some expensive sample clearance).

Go see ’bout Cynthia’s progeny here.(via DatPiff)

Chocolate Boy Wonder brings nasty tribute


Pete Rock (@peterock) who helmed one of Illmatic‘s all-time faves, The World is Yours, dropped Time is Illmatic on his Soundcloud.

It is also the name of the documentary produced by NY artist One9 (@one9actual) and writer Erik Parker (@erikgparker), which was debuted earlier this year as the opening film at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York before premieres at the AC3 festival in Atlanta, the BFI London Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto.

The doc celebrates the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, a rap classic that originally dropped in 1994 on Columbia. (via

Blasphemy abounds


The Ras Kass (@raskass)/Apollo Brown (@apollobrown) collaboration on Mello Music Group is available now on iTunes.

H20, the first single, is featured on the latest instalment of Rap vs Hip Hop.

This is the first collaboration between the two and is Ras Kass’ official return following incarceration and a couple of years in label limbo, while producer Apollo Brown has been amassing production credits with his own solo work and artists like OC, Boog Brown, Guilty Simpson and his Ugly Heroes collaboration with Verbal Kent (@big_vk1) and Red Pill (@redpillrap).

They debuted Blasphemy last week at with a release party In New York and an appearance on SiriusXM’s Sway In The Morning (@realsway) show. (via

Monolithic movements


Two Monolith emcees will be unleashing new vinyl.

Dan-E-O‘s (@daneo10) Dear Hip Hop single – a classic in the Canadian rap canon – will finally be available in vinyl form thanks to France’s Sergent Records.

It was released in 1996 on Beat Factory‘s RapEssentials, Volume One, followed by the EP.

Dear Hip Hop is available for order here.

Korry Deez (@korrydeez), on the other hand, will be dropping brand new product with the vinyl release of Imago on Solid Water.

He will be celebrating its release on November 7 at Ravage & Rumble in Toronto. (via Dan-E-O, Korry Deez)

Jewels 2 leaked, released, to be remixed


The excitement surrounding the release of another opportunity to hear El-P (@therealelp) and Killer Mike (@killermikegto) on a record was finally realized when they leaked Run the Jewels 2 before it officially dropped on iTunes.

The first RTJ album came out in 2013 after the two worked together on Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music and El-P’s Cancer 4 Cure.

Interestingly enough, their sophomore effort will be followed by a remix album on Fool’s Gold and the inside-joke-turned-real, Meow the Jewels, featuring guest production from Prince Paul, The Alchemist and Just Blaze.
Nehru, Nas record due next year

Speaking of Mass Appeal (@massappealrecs), they announced early in June that they will be releasing Bishop Nehru’s (@bishopnehru) forthcoming solo record.

That record will be executive produced by Nas (@nas).

Earlier this year, Nas brought Nehru out during SouthxSouthwest, referring to the fellow NY native as “the future of music”.

Mean the Most, off his current project with MF Doom, NehruvianDOOM, is featured in this week’s Rap vs. Hip Hop cloudcast. (via
